Recovery manager "factory reset" greyed out after a f11 bootup

UPDATE: I CREATED "AOMEI ONE KEY RECOVERY PARTITION" ALSO NOW JUST IN CASE I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO "CLONE" THE HP RECOVERY PARTITION OVER TO MY LAPTOP.. I RAN THE DISM++ BOOTUP CD & NEED TO KNOW WHICH FILE(S) ARE THE CORRECT "BASE.WIM" TO SELECT WITH THIS BOOTUP CD PLEASE ???

Recovery(J>recovery> Windows RE> winRE.wim, WinUCRD.wim

Recovery(J>preload>base.wim

Recovery(J>Factory update>boot.wim

With that AOEMI Recovery partition I also created on my "TARGET/LOCAL DISC" ( I also created a NEW Partition so I can clone it over ), I'll end up having 5 Partitions if that BOOT-UP CD can successfully CLONE that HP_Recovery Partition over to my TARGET/LOCAL Drive..
